Importing photos into Lightroom from a camera's memory card is really similar to…importing photos that you're storing on your drive, which I covered in the last…couple of movies. But there are a couple of things that are different,…so let me walk you through this process of importing photos from a…camera's memory card.…As soon as you plug a card reader with a memory card into your computer,…Lightroom's Import window may pop up.…That doesn't always happen depending on your memory card and your card reader.…So if it doesn't, then in Lightroom's Library, go up to the File menu and choose…Import Photos and Videos and that will open this Import window.…
This is the same window that we saw in the last movie.…I'll start working in this window over on the left, choosing the source from…which I'm going to import these photos.…By default, Lightroom will recognize the card reader and will choose that,…but if I happen to have more than one similar device plugged into my computer, I…can choose among them from this menu.…
